This morning I attended a WordPress meetup in downtown Orlando at Ideas. Today, we had a speaker and a panel addressing the topic of business. Continue reading “WordPress in Business Meetup”
Last Sunday I was sad to hear that my Sunday school teacher who was also the associate pastor of education resigned without warning.
For me this is difficult because he was the first Christian mentor I have had that really spoke to my heart. I felt he was a man that was truly devoted to Christ. This past week he was on a mission trip over seas helping a culture translate the bible into their language.
I was once told that nothing will make you lose your religion faster than going to church. The politics, people and drama follow sinners whever they preside. I pray that I will maintain a soft heart and focus on Him.
On the subject of Christ. One of the writers on my Christian-Gaming site may be facing a relapse in cancer. This man is barely into his twenties and already went though this earlier in life. I ask that you please keep Josh Turner in your prayers.

I stumbled onto this amazing symphony of darkness today.
These tracks are performed by The Last Hour, a project of Roberto Del Vecchio who has been composing music since 1994. Too bad he has not hit it bigger, this is quality stuff.
I was fortunate to hear Todd Cohen, the author of “Everyone’s in Sales” speak at the Premier CIO Forums this past week in Orlando. The forums were put on by the Society of Information Management. Todd left me with some things to consider which feel life changing and empowering in my professional life. Continue reading “Everyone is in Sales”
This morning, on my way to work I saw a bumper sticker on a car that read, “It’s a planet not an empire.”
This bumper sticker states something that I believe as an American society, we do not strive to be in harmony with nature. In the minds of many, it is our manifest destiny to conquer the planet. Plunder, consume and dispose is the engine that drives our wasteful economy. Continue reading “It’s a Planet not an Empire”

In life, I find that there are players and there are spectators. Through different seasons of our life, we may shift back and forth between either role. When it comes to writing at some point, you can go from reading to jumping in and take an active part in the process.
Being a writer means taking the leap from listening to saying, “Listen to me”. – Jhumpa Lahiri
Writing is a great way to express how you feel and think. Imagine all of the cool worlds that you put yourself in when you use your imagination. Wouldn’t it be great to have someone join you there?

Since I have moved into my new position at work, I have been dressing up a bit more than I used to be. As someone pointed out, that I’m no longer dressing up like an IT ruffian like I used to. I wear dress shirts and pants to work in place of faded polo shirts and dockers. Continue reading “Bow Ties”
